  1. Thank you, Steve.

     

    Right.  The thread had gone stagnate for 24 hours.  So this gave the topic new life.  
     

    Your translation is very helpful, Steve.  Thank you.  
     

    Can I ask—do you fee as well, that the signature says that it was from an order of 5 guns?

     

    And second, do you know if this gun was in fact made by the son of the great Ikkan-sai Kunitomo smith?  
     

    Looking forward to hearing your comments, Steve.  
     

    Thank you.

    This sword is in beautiful condition.  The mounts are excellent.  The blade is in polish with an occasional light scratch.  There are no nicks in the blade edge.  The blade is perfectly straight.

    Condition:

    This sword is in beautiful condition.  The mounts are excellent.  The blade is in wartime polish with one tiny nail catcher type nick which is so slight it is hard to see.  It's really only detectable when pulling the cutting edge along a fingernail.  There is some light staining on the blade.  The blade is perfectly straight.  

     

    The hamon and boshi are perfectly healthy.
